Stepping up to the plate to raise funds for SPCA Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Reds will host Bark in the Park on April 16th. A chance for baseball buffs to enjoy a game alongside their barking buddy, pet parents and their pups will be sitting in the catbird seat, so to speak, as they take their places in a special reserved area and watch the Reds play ball against the Philadelphia Phillies.
There will also be plenty of Fido-centric fun off the field! For a donation to SPCA Cincinnati, dogs and their devoted guardian can have their photo taken in front of a special Reds backdrop; Spots can vie for prizes for the best dog trick, best Reds dash, best dressed dog and smallest/largest dog; attendees can mull over merchandise at the pet expo or look for a new furry friend among adorable adoptables from SPCA Cincinnati in the Dog Zone, and pups can promenade in the pre-game pet parade alongside a member of their human family on the track surrounding the field.
Fans who miss the April 16th game won’t be in the dog house, as the Reds will host a second Bark in the Park on September 23rd when they take on the Philadelphia Phillies.
Tickets: Dog package (one person, one dog) $32 each; ($30 if both games purchased before the April 16th game sells out); additional human tickets: $22 each. $2 from each Dog Package is donated to SPCA Cincinnati.
